Essex Police is reminding residents that racial abuse of any kind in Essex is not acceptable and will be investigated.
Superintendent Richard Melton, Essex Police force lead for Hate Crime, Hostility and Anti-Social Behaviour, said: “We, like many people across Essex, have been horrified by the racial abuse directed at England players Marcus Rashford, Jaydon Sancho and Bukayo Saka after the Euro 2020 final on Sunday.
“Although the result wasn't what we hoped for, it's absolutely no excuse for the appalling behaviour we have seen reported across the country.
“We would like to remind our residents that racial abuse of any kind in Essex is not acceptable and will be investigated
“Everyone has the right to live, work and socialise in Essex without fear of abuse."
